Thanks for the info. has discussed with the Chinese teacher, she emphasised the diff between 2 papers and mentioned most parents think doing HCL will benefit CL (this is what i thought)jedamum wrote:From what I understand, the answering techniques for hcl compre and cl compre is different. The focus on compo and textbook vocab are different too. Hcl class need to do both hcl and cl past papers drills for sch homework which is twice the workload compared to cl class. So unless the kid can cope, it may be worth to consider focus on cl.
We had initially wanted to continue hcl in p6 term 1 too, but teacher told us that if subsequently we drop hcl, we may be without a class as the best cl class already full. Then may be stuck with hcl class whose focus is not on cl answering techniques and sections of cl papers.
So best to consult and discuss with teacher.
Well i think taking HCL will definitely benefit CL though may not be in exam/PSLE
